    Christ the King's 30 Days of

          Reading- Pondering

          Praying -  Listening

      beginning July 1 - 31 

The Four Movements of Lectio Divina

This is a “community practice” that has been likened to “feasting on the Word”. And, although Lectio Divina involves reading, it is less a practice of reading than one of listening to the inner message of Scripture delivered through the Holy Spirit. We do not seek information or motivation, but communion with God. Scripture becomes more than texts to be read, but the “Living Word”.

1)  Read (slowly & several times)
         preparation includes “stillness” (Ps 46:10)Lectio-Divina Four-Movements 01 prayer01

2)  Meditate
         allow the Holy Spirit to illuminate the mind; pay attention to
         words or phrases that “speak to you”

3)  Pray
          prayer is understood to be dialogue with God, a loving conversation with God
          who has invited us into an embrace

 4)  Contemplate
           silent prayer that expresses love for GodELW SummerTree02 resize1
